I would like to take the time to wish Danneel a very Happy 38th Birthday and a beautiful day with her family and friends! Lot of her fans have been very active on Twitter and Tumblr, and Danneel herself took to Twitter to not just thank fans, but also to ask for fans to help raise funds for a fundraiser titled ‘Gracie Needs Your Help!’
The fundraiser has a goal of $50,000 for the daughter of a friend of Danneel’s. Below you can see what it is for:
7-year-old Gracie Zaunbrecher went to a gymnastics meet last weekend to compete with her team, something that she loves. At the meet, however, her balance was off. She was stumbling and disoriented. Two days later, she underwent an MRI and was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare and aggressive brain tumor in the part of the brain stem called the pons, which controls essential bodily functions such as heartbeat, breathing, swallowing, eye movement, eyesight, and balance.
Gracie’s parents, Maile and Byron, learned the devastating statistics on DIPG — the tumor is inoperable and incurable. These are words that no parent should ever have to hear.
Danneel’s tweet is below and please RT!
This is my dear friend from High School's little girl and she needs our help!❤Thanks for all the BDay wishes!!https://t.co/JQ3AzA0Dx7

Last night, Danneel, Jensen, Jared and Genevieve attended the 2016 Thinkery Imaginarium Gala; the second time for Danneel as she attended with Genevieve last year. Although we have yet to see any HQ pictures, or photobooth shots like last year, Steve Carlson, a friend of Jensen and Danneel’s, attended with his wife Lana and posted an image of the families and friends together at the event.
According to the welcome notice/menu, Jensen and Danneel contributed a sum of money which has led to the partnership between Thinkery and POP Austin, titled Think POP. If you can remember from last year, Danneel attended POP Austin with her brother and Steve also.
Another amazing piece of news is that Danneel and Jensen shall also be hosting ThinkPOP at 800 Congress on Saturday 15th october. We are hopeful to possibly have some news from now and until that date. Perhaps even pictures of the event!

We shall update if any pictures/videos are released online. Be sure to check out shots from last years Thinkery, using the gallery below:
If you haven’t heard by now, Danneel and Jensen announced yesterday that they are expecting their second and third child as they are having twins! We reported this news yesterday on the site, which also included the fact they are having a boy and a girl!
To help celebrate this news, Adoring-Ackles has set up a special fundraiser for a very important charity and we are collaborating to help out with the promotion of it. The charity itself is called ‘St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Texas Region Inc’, and it established in Texas where, as we know, Jensen hails from and where the Ackles family currently recede! The charity itself caters to children and families that have been affected by trauma, abuse and neglect in tehir lives. Both Jensen and Danneel have always been supportive of charities similar to the one above, so it seemed right that this specific one was chosen!
Their mission statement is as follows:
Transforming the lives of abused and at-risk children, young adults and families by empowering them to create new chances, new choices and new hope in a caring community.
If you would like to read their vision and values, see here.
You can visit SRJC Texas following this link as well.
Onto the fundraiser itself, AA has set a target for $1000 that hopefully the whole fandom can help surpass and possibly even more! At the time of posting, $30 has already been raised which is amazing considering it was just posted!
Please donate if you can, and also share the fundraiser on social media to spread awareness! The widget shall be placed in our sidebar for easy donating as well.
If you have been following Danneel’s tweets lately, you may have noticed a project/fundraiser that she mentions a few times.

The back story of this fundraiser is of an attempt to fund raise $125,000 to fund a documentary about Austin City Limits TV show. Now as a non-American, I can’t say I’ve heard of it before but I do appreciate music and the spirit of coming together to fund exciting projects!
Below is a little about the fundraiser:
A Song For You: The Austin City Limits Story, compiles interviews, never before seen backstage footage, pivotal bookings and memorable moments to tell the story of the iconic Austin City Limits TV show from its beginning with Willie Nelson, to where it is today― hosting music legends and premiering the music legends of tomorrow.
This documentary is the ultimate archive on the impact Austin City Limits has had on our appreciation and passion for music. A Song For You meets the people behind their celebrity stardom to show that musicians are fans too, reaching for blissful musical experiences. 40 years in the making. Over 800 performers. And here we have it: Your front-row seat and backstage pass.
Artists featuring in it include Dave Grohl, Florence and The Machine, Jeff Tweedy, Beck, Sturgill Simpson and more.
For those who send donations, they can receive various perks. These include shoutouts, posters, merchandise and lots of other VIP goodies!
One of the main reasons for the fundraiser is due to the fact A Song For You has numerous songs and footage in the documentary where the rights to play these have to be paid for. It is also an independent film, free from corporate sponsors.
Overall this such an important documentary in terms of music culture, as well as Austin culture, and it would definitely pay for people to check this campaign out, share it on social media and also possibly donate! There is currently just a week left to raise the full $125,000 or else no funds are received! Currently $90,220 has been raised – it is do-able! We will post regular updates on our Twitter to let followers know how it’s going.
Let’s help them do this!
For Danneel’s 37th birthday this year, we wanted to do something a little different than usual.We have set up a charity fundraiser in aid of Hat’s Off For Cancer, a charity Jensen and Danneel have supported before.
At this point, we are starting with a goal of £500 which we feel is generous and also do-able! However more than this amount can be raised, which would be even more generous!
If you can remember, before their daughter Justice was born, instead of gifts, the couple asked for donation’s here, which surpassed the initial amount!
Hat’s Off For Cancer is a very special charity as it provides hat’s for children suffering from the disease. To find out more, check here.
Just to be clear, FansForDanneel.com receives NO MONEY from this fundraiser. 100% (unless a small percentage applies towards fees) goes towards the charity.
We would like to thank people beforehand and would love if you could spread the word.
